Zombie keeps the film soiled as the mythology of Michael Meyers becomes discombobulated and exhausted. 12-Oct-2018
Trash art elevated by high energy, cliche improvements, professional visibility (actors,) Alexandre Aja (director) and Nicotero's (make-up) enthusiasm. 08-Oct-2018
The act is porny, the conversations are ear splitting but the elevator has a wicked sense of humor. 27-Sep-2018
Parents of the year contend with a rude awakening. Just when Nicole's volcano of talent erupts the movie blindsides us with an inconclusive fate. 24-Jul-2018
Love Liza (2002)
The movie never lets up its depressive state. Hoffman digs so deep and personal that its hard to withstand the character he ascribes. He has a mental illness beyond depression and his unwillingness to move forward after tragedy hints that what he mourns was not deserved. Anything eventually would have rendered him dependent and his wife knew that. 20-Jul-2018
Collector, The (2009)
Schooling for psychopaths on how to execute an ugly death. It's bloody torture. 20-Jun-2018
Indian in the Cupboard (1995)
The effects hold up better than the story. Lonely boy gets fantastical gift that brings toys to life and extols him godlike qualities and judgment.
I don't understand how casting dominion over an American Indian's life progresses the man or the child. The life-toys don't get a life ending which asserts that they were only playthings for an unseen boy.
The story asks us to dispense with logic more than we're capable. 14-May-2018
Better Watch Out (2016)
The idea is terrifying because the reality is. The film tests you and deplores you but you keep hanging on. We want to feel that the torture endured will dignify an ending release. The balls hang low. 30-Apr-2018
All The Boys Love Mandy Lane (2006)
Boys lead with their penises and girls shake them until the power is transferred to them. The deaths cut with cruelty as the end bolsters surprise. 27-Apr-2018
King Kong (1976)
Jessica overcame it, Jeff squishes what he can from unkempt, the effects now match the script (awful) and Kong is perverted. It's beautiful score deserves a better movie. 18-Apr-2018
Psycho II (1983)
Everything has been dialed up a notch...the performances, the dedication, the modernization. Unfortunately all the movie needed was a tip, an expansion and a scare. Hitchcock's successor was necessary to rein that in. 08-Apr-2018
Maddening tale about a ridiculous man whose lateness from work inspires him to bail on his wife and daughters to not to have to explain. He moves above the garage to spy on them and become homeless and disgusting, all the while ejaculating the reasons his wife and children have made him a miserable man, none of which is evident. This is an exercise for Bryan Cranston to act up which he obliges like the spirit of Harvey Korman. He's a trainwreck you can't stop watching until the movie veers the train in your face. 22-Mar-2018
Boy, Did I Get a Wrong Number! (1966)
What was once a playful satire on the battle of the sexes is today considered educational sex exploitation. It's breezy and disrespectful but its also nervy. The men were talking about how they perceived three generations of women and how the female always acquiesced. Either the women weren't listening or they were content as long as men pretended to care about them. Elke Sommer is courageous sexual dynamite, Phyllis Diller played it like one of the boys and Hope got forgiven for every sexual invective. The movie gets broad and loses its aspiration but it does not need to be erased. It teaches us a history parents cannot. 21-Mar-2018
Extreme Movie (2008)
It belongs locked in a time capsule. Every teenage boy perversion is enacted without respect or acknowledgement of their desire. It is a catapult of "me too" and a denigration of all sexes. Depicting men and women as competitors in love or sex doesn't bode well for a society hellbent on exposing its normality.
When Matthew Lillard exclaims that he can't say that joke because he has two daughters but continues reading it, the movie and the immature men who made it are slanderously defined. 09-Mar-2018
It's an ode to American action farce from another time except the makers weren't privy to any of the good ones. The leads have bygone ethnic daddy squish, chemistry and lashes of quick wit. The film has a reset button, treats women like chess pieces and has no identity. I'm not figuring it out for them. 20-Feb-2018
